Practical Action Publishing acquires Health Books International!

We are excighted to share the news that Health Books International, a non-profit organisation that has provided healthcare and medical information to developing countries for over 50 years, has been integrated into Practical Action Publishing’s collection of resources.

This addition of an established health list is an important expression of Practical Action’s mission to put affordable knowledge into the hands of people who need it most, whatever their location, in a language and format that suits them best. By diversifying and expanding our range of subjects and formats, and by bringing our two organisations together, we hope to make important knowledge more accessible for communities around the world. Global collaboration is central to giving people access to fresh answers and practical resources to tackle the causes of poverty and disadvantage.

The Health Books International website will continue as normal - take a look around!

Please get in touch at if you have any questions at all, and we will be glad to discuss our new collection with you.
